By the year 2020, America is outsourcing virtually all its manufacturing, most of it to China. We depend on them for almost everything we buy and sell; without them, our economy would collapse. That dependence threatens to become fatal when economic war is declared on America by a hostile Chinese government and all products “Made in China” suddenly disappear, cut off at their source. Seattle-based systems engineer Jack Conway fi nds himself the point man for America’s response to China’s embargo. His new position puts him and the woman he loves in extreme danger, as they become the targets of hired hit men in a deadly game of industrial espionage and international intrigue. These ruthless killers will stop at nothing to protect the Chinese agenda. Meanwhile, America faces its greatest challenge since World War II: the revival of the nation’s moribund factories and industries. MADE IN CHINA is an informed look at America’s reaction to economic embattlement; it is also a love story, as two people discover how far they will go not only to protect their country, but to preserve their relationship and the life they hope to share. As America outsources more and more work to foreign soil, Reutlinger gives us a frightening glimpse into the future toward which we may be headed.

Executives worldwide have studied and emulated U.S. entrepreneurs from Bill Gates to Michael Dell. Yet, we know next to nothing about the pioneers who are reshaping the world's second largest economy: China. In the face of murky ownership structures, inconsistent access to capital, shifting industrial policy, and other obstacles, an elite few Chinese firms have thrived during the turbulence of the last decade. In Made in China, Donald N. Sull profiles eight of these formidable ventures to reveal the secrets behind their surprising success. Based on extensive research, including in-depth interviews and access to corporate archives, Made in China explores these entrepreneurs' winning strategies, from how they anticipate and maneuver through emerging threats and opportunities ("active waiting") to how they manage risks and how they consistently out-execute rivals. Taken together, these principles represent a comprehensive model for managing in unpredictable environments worldwide. An insider's look at the playbook of some of the world's savviest and most resilient entrepreneurs, Made in China is essential reading for companies operating in China or in any volatile industry or market. Sull is an associate professor of management practice at London Business School. Previously an assistant professor of business administration at Harvard Business School, Sull was also a consultant at McKinsey & Co., Inc. He advises both multinational firms and new ventures in several countries.

In the wake of 9/11, with our best and brightest people consumed by the relentless hunt for bin Laden and al-Qaeda, a new threat of terror from a source completely undetected by US intelligence grows dangerously closer with each passing moment. One man alone has six days to stop it. October 16, 1964: The Beatles have invaded US shores, and communist Red China has become the newest member of the nuclear club. Once again, the world has changed forever. By the early 1970s, it had become evident to certain party leaders that China’s missile technology was severely lagging, hence the fledgling nation could never become a true superpower as were the US and the Soviets. An alternate plan was needed. Led by their most brilliant scientist, a renegade faction of the Red Regime formed a secret alliance with a dissident splinter of the North Korean military. Through the hand of the Chinese Tong and an unwitting American Mafia, the group set into motion a deadly thirty-year plan. Sam Mason is writing what he expects will be his most thrilling book yet. But as he delves into his research, Sam slowly comes to realize that his fantastic plot is a grim and imminent reality. An ex–Navy SEAL, Mason acquires proof of the sinister scheme, only to find himself hunted by teams of Asian assassins. Now it is up to Sam to convince the commander in chief of the deadly Chinese plot.

Praise for Poorly Made in China "This fast-paced travelogue through the world of Chinese manufacturing is scary, fascinating, and very funny. Midler is not only a knowledgeable guide to the invisible underbelly of the global economy, he is a sympathetic and astute observer of China, its challenges, and its people. A great read." —Pietra Rivoli, author of The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy "Paul Midler takes us for a ride through the fastest-growing economy in the world, revealing what can—and sometimes does—go wrong when U.S. companies shift production to China. Working in the heart of China's export hub, in the country's southern region, he has the advantage of a front-row seat to the no-holds-barred games played between manufacturers and importers. He introduces us to a cast of real-life characters and tells his story with a mix of affection and skepticism for what is taking place in China today. Midler delivers a revealing and often funny tale of life and commerce in a country whose exports touch nearly everyone on the planet." —Sara Bongiorni, author of A Year Without 'Made in China'

Covid-19 has precipitated a breakdown in trust between China and the West, eroding hope that the regime will change for the better as China becomes more secure and wealthy. This ground-breaking book looks behind Beijing's official narrative to show how the Party and its leadership think and act, exposing their strengths and weaknesses when confronted by the pandemic. We can discover as much about the PRC from the Covid outbreak as we can learn about the virus and our future by looking at the PRC. Jasper Becker explains why the Wuhan Institute of Virology is not just a building. It represents a huge national effort to wrest control of global technology. Following its success with 5G, China is now looking to bio-engineering for fresh opportunities to challenge Western commercial and military interests. It's possible that this strategy of reckless experimentation--particularly with clandestine bioweapons--led to an accidental release of the virus. 'Made in China' reveals these essential links between the pandemic and the future of international relations. Coronavirus has accelerated a process already underway: China will no longer be treated as a friend of the West, and vice versa. This historic shift will affect every sphere of our lives.

A Most-Anticipated Book of the Year: Newsweek * Refinery29 “Moving and powerful.” —Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and author In 2012, an Oregon mother named Julie Keith opened up a package of Halloween decorations. The cheap foam headstones had been $5 at Kmart, too good a deal to pass up. But when she opened the box, something fell out that she wasn’t expecting: an SOS letter, handwritten in broken English by the prisoner who’d made and packaged the items. In Made in China, investigative journalist Amelia Pang pulls back the curtain on the labor camps that create the home goods we buy at Kmart, the fast fashion we buy at H&M, and a shocking number of other products besides. The book follows the life of Sun Yi, the Chinese engineer who wrote the note after finding himself a political prisoner, locked in a gulag for joining a forbidden meditation practice and campaigning for the freedom to do so. There he worked alongside petty criminals, civil rights activists, and anyone else the Chinese government decided to “reeducate,” carving foam gravestones and stitching clothing for more than fifteen hours a day. In chasing this story, journalist Amelia Pang has conducted extensive interviews with Sun Yi and the people who knew him. She also identified and interviewed others who endured similar horrors, and who inflicted them. And she traveled to China to follow falsified supply chains herself, tracking trucks from labor camps to warehouses. The story she uncovers is a call to action, urging the American consumer to ask more questions and demand more answers from the companies they patronize.

According to the Chinese zodiac, 2017 was the year of the 'fire rooster', an animal often associated with the mythical fenghuang, a magnificently beautiful bird whose appearance is believed to mark the beginning of a new era of peaceful flourishing. Considering the auspicious symbolism surrounding the fenghuang, it is fitting that on 18 October 2017, President Xi Jinping took to the stage of the Nineteenth Party Congress to proclaim the beginning of a 'new era' for Chinese socialism. However, in spite of such ecumenical proclamations, it became immediately evident that not all in China would be welcome to reap the rewards promised by the authorities. Migrant workers, for one, remain disposable. Lawyers, activists and even ordinary citizens who dare to express critical views also hardly find a place in Xi's brave new world. This Yearbook traces the stark new 'gilded age' inaugurated by the Chinese Communist Party. It does so through a collection of more than 40 original essays on labour, civil society and human rights in China and beyond, penned by leading scholars and practitioners from around the world.

As China has evolved into an industrial powerhouse over the past two decades, a new class of workers has developed: the dagongmei, or working girls. The dagongmei are women in their late teens and early twenties who move from rural areas to urban centers to work in factories. Because of state laws dictating that those born in the countryside cannot permanently leave their villages, and familial pressure for young women to marry by their late twenties, the dagongmei are transient labor. They undertake physically exhausting work in urban factories for an average of four or five years before returning home. The young women are not coerced to work in the factories; they know about the twelve-hour shifts and the hardships of industrial labor. Yet they are still eager to leave home. Made in China is a compelling look at the lives of these women, workers caught between the competing demands of global capitalism, the socialist state, and the patriarchal family. Pun Ngai conducted ethnographic work at an electronics factory in southern China’s Guangdong province, in the Shenzhen special economic zone where foreign-owned factories are proliferating. For eight months she slept in the employee dormitories and worked on the shop floor alongside the women whose lives she chronicles. Pun illuminates the workers’ perspectives and experiences, describing the lure of consumer desire and especially the minutiae of factory life. She looks at acts of resistance and transgression in the workplace, positing that the chronic pains—such as backaches and headaches—that many of the women experience are as indicative of resistance to oppressive working conditions as they are of defeat. Pun suggests that a silent social revolution is underway in China and that these young migrant workers are its agents.
